Player Outlook
A 31-year-old with a career 5.41 ERA who hasn't made a major-league start in over a year wouldn't ordinarily have any fantasy appeal. Erick Fedde, however, made the most of his time away from the majors, making 30 starts for the KBO's NC Dinos and pitching to a 2.00 ERA and 0.97 WHIP. Those numbers came with excellent supporting stats such as his 29.5 percent strikeout rate and 4.9 percent walk rate. A healthy dose of skepticism regarding those numbers is fair given the level of competition, but it's far from unheard of for pitchers to figure things out in Korea and return to some success stateside. Chris Flexen recorded a 3.01 ERA with similar strikeout and walk rates to Fedde in his lone KBO campaign in 2020 and then returned to post sub-4.00 ERAs in two straight seasons, while Merrill Kelly spent four years in Korea and returned to post a 3.80 ERA across five MLB campaigns. The White Sox will hope that Fedde can follow a similar path, and the fact that he reinvented his arsenal overseas (adding a sweeper and adjusting his grips on other pitches) gives reason to believe he has a chance.

  • White Sox's Erick Fedde: Sharp in Saturday's quality start

    Fedde came away with a no-decision in Saturday's 5-3 loss to Baltimore, allowing three hits and three walks over 6.1 innings. He struck out six. The right-hander baffled the O's over 103 pitches (64 strikes) and left the mound with the White Sox ahead 3-0, only to see Jordan Leasure and Michael Kopech serve up three homers between them in the eighth inning. Fedde has delivered three scoreless outings in his last four starts, giving him five quality starts on the season, and he sports a stunning 2.80 ERA, 1.07 WHIP and 58:18 K:BB through 64.1 innings -- a far cry from the 5.41 ERA and 1.52 WHIP he compiled in 454.1 innings for the Nationals prior to spending 2023 in the KBO. He'll look to keep rolling in his next start, which lines up to come on the road next weekend in Milwaukee.

  • White Sox's Erick Fedde: Tagged for five runs in loss

    Fedde (4-1) took the loss Monday against Toronto, allowing five runs on seven hits and one walk over six innings. He struck out two. Fedde got hit hard in his start, as five of the seven hits he yielded went for extra bases. Despite the rough outing, the 31-year-old righty sports a 3.10 ERA, 1.09 WHIP and 52:15 K:BB over 58 innings this season. Fedde is slated to face Baltimore at home in his next start this weekend.

  • White Sox's Erick Fedde: Brilliant in revenge game

    Fedde (4-0) picked up the win in the second game of Tuesday's doubleheader against the Nationals, scattering three hits over seven scoreless innings in a 4-0 victory. He struck out six without walking a batter. Facing the team he spent the first six seasons of his MLB career with before pitching in the KBO in 2023, Fedde showed the Nats what they were missing, tossing 60 of 99 pitches for strikes as he delivered a second straight scoreless effort and his fourth quality start of the year. The 31-year-old right-hander will take a 2.60 ERA, 1.06 WHIP and 50:14 K:BB through 52 innings into his next outing, which is scheduled to come early next week in Toronto.

  • White Sox's Erick Fedde: Bounces back with scoreless outing

    Fedde (3-0) earned the win over Cleveland on Thursday, allowing six hits and striking out three batters over six scoreless innings. It appeared Fedde's surprising effectiveness to begin the campaign could be coming to an end after he gave up five runs over 4.1 frames versus St. Louis his last time out, but he rebounded strongly with six scoreless innings Thursday. All six hits against the right-hander were singles, but he did need a little help to escape without a run on his ledger, as Jordan Leasure held off the Guardians after relieving Fedde with no outs and the bases loaded in the top of the seventh inning. Fedde's poor career track record provides a logical reason for fantasy managers to question how long he can keep pitching well, but he's exceeded expectations so far with a 3.00 ERA, 1.16 WHIP and 44:14 K:BB through 45 innings covering eight starts.

  • White Sox's Erick Fedde: Folds against Cards

    Fedde escaped with a no-decision Saturday in a 6-5 extra-inning win over the Cardinals, giving up five runs on four hits and five walks over 4.1 innings. He struck out two. The right-hander blanked St. Louis for four innings despite issuing free passes in the first, second and fourth frames, but his luck ran out in the fifth. Fortunately for Fedde, the White Sox came back to tie the game up after he left the mound before winning in the 10th. Fedde threw only 48 of 91 pitches for strikes in his shortest outing of the season, and he has walked at least three batters in three of his last five starts. He'll take a 3.46 ERA, 1.18 WHIP and 41:14 K:BB through 39 innings into his next outing, which lines up to come at home next week against the Guardians.

  • White Sox's Erick Fedde: Pitches into ninth versus Tampa Bay

    Fedde (2-0) earned the win after he pitched 8.1 innings, allowing two runs on seven hits while striking out nine batters in Sunday's 4-2 victory over the Rays. Fedde tossed three scoreless innings before he surrendered a solo homer to Isaac Paredes in the top of the fourth frame. He later allowed another run in the top of the ninth when attempting to finish off the complete game, exiting with a runner on second and one out in the final inning. The 31-year-old has now recorded back-to-back quality starts while he's given up just three total runs over 22 innings in his last three outings. Fedde will carry a 2.60 ERA into his next projected start Friday in St. Louis.

  • White Sox's Erick Fedde: Tallies 11 punchouts

    Fedde allowed one earned run on three hits and struck out 11 batters across six innings Tuesday en route to a loss against Minnesota. He didn't factor into the decision. Fedde got behind early after allowing an RBI single to Max Kepler in the first inning, but an Eloy Jimenez three-run homer allowed him to leave the game with a 3-1 lead. However, the 31-year-old was unable to secure his second win of the season thanks to a ninth-inning rally from the Twins. His 11 strikeouts represent a new career high, and the right-hander has emerged as one of the more reliable arms in Chicago's rotation with a 2.73 ERA across his first five starts. He's lined up to start again at home against the Rays on Sunday.

  • White Sox's Erick Fedde: Collects first victory

    Fedde (1-0) earned the win in Game 2 of Wednesday's doubleheader against the Royals after he allowed three hits and three walks over 5.2 scoreless innings. He struck out five. It's Fedde's first win since Sept. 4, 2022 as he delivered his best start of the season in Wednesday's nightcap. The right-hander generated 30 combined called and swinging strikes and didn't allow a baserunner to reach third base. Through four starts Fedde now has a 3.10 ERA, 1.33 WHIP and 19:9 K:BB across 20.1 innings.

  • White Sox's Erick Fedde: Allows one run in no-decision

    Fedde did not factor into the decision Friday against the Royals, allowing one run on six hits and two walks over five innings. He struck out four. Although Fedde conceded a single run Friday night, he gave up plenty of hard contact, allowing eight batted balls in excess of 95 mph. The 31-year-old right-hander generated only three whiffs in his 91 total pitches, an ominous sign for his strikeout upside. Fedde is currently scheduled to pitch on the road against the Guardians in his next start.

  • White Sox's Erick Fedde: Fans seven in team debut

    Fedde did not factor into the decision, allowing two runs on five hits and one walk over 4.2 innings during Sunday's loss to the Tigers. He struck out seven. Fedde needed 96 pitches to record 14 outs, but he looked solid in his first start with the White Sox. After playing each of his first six big-league seasons with the Nationals, Fedde spent time last year in the KBO with much success, leading to another major-league opportunity, this time with the White Sox. His next start is tentatively slated to take place on the road next weekend against Kansas City.

  • White Sox's Erick Fedde: Confirmed for Sunday's start

    Fedde (quadriceps) is starting Sunday's game against the Tigers. The right-hander suffered a quadriceps injury during his final spring start last weekend, but he's ready to make his season debut Sunday versus Detroit. Fedde joined the White Sox on a two-year, $15 million contract in December after he posted a 2.00 ERA and 209:35 K:BB across 180.1 frames in the KBO last year.

  • White Sox's Erick Fedde: Suffers quad injury

    Fedde suffered a quadriceps injury in Sunday's matchup with the Rockies, Scott Merkin of MLB.com reports. Fedde was on the mound for the start Sunday versus Colorado, tossing five innings, allowing one run on two hits and a walk while striking out four batters. In the contest, he took a line drive off of his right leg, suffering a quadriceps contusion. He reportedly avoided a significant injury, and Fedde expects to be able to make his first scheduled start of the 2024 campaign Sunday versus the Tigers.

  • White Sox's Erick Fedde: May start Opening Day

    Fedde appears to be in line to start for the White Sox on Opening Day against the Tigers, Daryl Van Schouwen of the Chicago Sun-Times reports. Fedde emerged as the frontrunner to start Opening Day after the White Sox traded Dylan Cease to the Padres on Wednesday in exchange for a haul of prospects. Fedde's last season in the majors came in 2022, when he accumulated a 5.81 ERA and 1.63 WHIP while striking out 94 batters across 127 innings. He spent last season in the Korea Baseball Organization and won the league's MVP award after posting a 2.00 ERA, and the 31-year-old righty has has been OK in spring training thus far. Fedde's recent success should be enough to warrant cautious optimism from fantasy managers heading into the new season.

  • White Sox's Erick Fedde: Signs with White Sox

    Fedde signed a two-year, $15 million contract with the White Sox on Tuesday, Jeff Passan of ESPN.com reports. Fedde will return to the majors after spending the 2023 season in the KBO, where he posted a 2.00 ERA and was named the league's MVP. The 30-year-old righty put up a 5.41 ERA and 1.52 WHIP with the Nationals from 2017-22, but the White Sox are apparently willing to take a chance on Fedde after finishing with one of baseball's worst pitching staffs last season.

  • Erick Fedde: Drawing interest from MLB teams

    Fedde is drawing interest from MLB teams this winter after a successful 2023 season in the Korea Baseball Organization, Jon Heyman of the New York Post reports. Fedde signed a one-year, $1 million contract with the KBO's NC Dinos last December and went on to post a 20-6 record, 2.00 ERA, 0.95 WHIP and 209:35 K:BB across 180.1 innings (30 starts) as he claimed the Korean version of the Cy Young Award. The 30-year-old right-hander had a 5.41 ERA in 454.1 innings with the Nationals between the 2017-22 seasons, but it looks like he'll get another shot in the majors and could even command a fairly sizable deal.

  • Erick Fedde: Headed to Korea

    Fedde agreed to a one-year, $1 million contract with the NC Dinos of the Korea Baseball Organization on Tuesday, Jee-ho Yoo of the Yonhap News Agency reports. Fedde was given a $200,000 signing bonus and an $800,000 salary, reaching the one-year maximum salary for a first-year foreign player in the KBO. The 29-year-old was a bust as a 2014 first-round pick before being non-tendered by the Nationals earlier this offseason.

  • Erick Fedde: Non-tendered by Washington

    The Nationals declined to tender Fedde a contract for 2023, Mark Zuckerman of MASNSports.com reports. Washington kept trotting Fedde out there despite his struggles -- he had the second-worst ERA (5.81) among pitchers who threw at least 120 innings in the majors last season, trailing only teammate Patrick Corbin. Fedde will likely have to scratch and claw for a roster spot somewhere in spring training.

  • Nationals' Erick Fedde: Allows four runs during loss

    Fedde (6-11) took the loss Saturday, allowing four runs on nine hits and one walk over 5.2 innings against the Marlins. He struck out four. Fedde allowed a two-run single in the first inning followed by a solo homer from outfielder Bryan De La Cruz to lead off the fourth and an RBI double from Miguel Rojas in the sixth, one of three doubles surrendered by the righty. Fedde is going through a dreadful stretch in his last nine starts, recording a 7.42 ERA and 1.90 WHIP over 40 innings. Furthermore, the 29-year-old has pitched five innings or more in just four of those starts.

  • Nationals' Erick Fedde: Strikes out three batters

    Fedde did not factor into the decision against Miami on Saturday, allowing three runs on seven hits while striking out three batters and walking none over four innings.

He has completed the sixth inning only five times all year. In his last 21.2 innings, the righty has allowed 16 earned runs, giving him a 6.79 ERA since Aug. 23. He has a 5.29 ERA on the season.

The righty has been dreadful in his last seven starts, turning in a 7.71 ERA and 1.95 WHIP over 30.1 innings. In addition, the 29-year-old has pitched five innings or more just three times during that span.
